Vladimir Sarser has taken on the pseudonym Mir for stage performances, the Russian translation for world peace and earth unity. Sarser's creative influences derived from the British and American pop rock music, such as U2, Depeche Mode, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, Metallica, and Jamiroquai. From these multicultural influences, Sarser has been able to create an eclectic, original sound somewhere between Classic Rock and Alternative Pop. MIR was completed as a virtually solo project, whereby Sarser wore several hats including Music Producer, Lead Vocalist, Backup Vocalist, and Sound Engineer. Most recently, his music has been promoted through several venues; including live performances in the San Francisco Bay Area with professional musicians along with an active marketing campaign in Gavin Magazine, Doug Weber Arts, KUSF 90.3, SF Musician.com, MP3.com.
and Peoplesound.com to name a few.
Brian West plays keys. He has jammed with Dave Mathews, Butch Mudbone, and
Johnny Rivers, traveling from California to the southern US, from Florida to Japan. West is the owner of TakeWest Music (ASCAP) and Kirby Publishing (BMI). He has created music for video game companies in L.A. and Tokyo, as well as Internet newcomer Esther.com, and for Yahoo! Music, as Associate Producer .
The other band members include Tony Simon on guitar, Lenny Thompson on the drums, and Kevin Allen on the bass performing for audiences across the US, Europe, and Asia. Together they have played in venues ranging in size from 10,000 to 100,000 people with The Drifters, The Coasters, and The Marvalletes.
Tony Simon's career spans across decades playing with Rock'n'Roll legends, Little Richard and Sam Cook while under contract with Specialty Records in L.A.; and has opened for world class acts such as Steve Miller and Motley Crue.
